The ad guarantees a live delivery. Along with the monkey you’ll get a free cage, a free leather collar and leash, a free monkey toy and monkey care instructions. I have my doubts as to how good those instructions are, because the ad tells us that spider monkeys eat the same food we do, even lollipops! A staple of any primate’s diet.
I wonder how many kids scraped up the $18.95 and purchased a “darling live pet monkey” through this ad in the back of a comic book. Without informing Mom and Dad. Must have been a pleasant surprise.
And live seahorses! A buck apiece! What a bargain!
